Creating groups

Postby kryptic » Fri Nov 13, 2009 18:05

Hi all!

I am having some trouble on my sabayon 5.0 desktop. Would like to create a group for an app i downloaded and also another one for running some games. Trouble is I am unable to do so via the Users and Groups under System/Administration. Upon adding group, it doesn't show up under the list of groups. I was unable to find command line instructions for this either.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you.
